The pandemic has made for a difficult year so far for schools, teachers, students and parents. And with the increase in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in Arizona, that’s not likely to change after winter break for either urban or rural districts.

In the first semester of the school year, the Nogales Unified School District had 5,500 students learning online and provided about 2,000 Wi-Fi hotspots to families that requested them.

In June, The Show spoke with Fernando Parra, the district’s superintendent. The Show spoke with him again recently to find out how students and teachers are doing.
